Invision bought Trunk and closes it(

almost 5 years ago from Tomas Anthony, Product Designer

    I always found Invision ok, instead of spending so much money on creating documentaries, buying other startups and getting designers rockstars as testimonials, I prefer they spend the 10% of those $ on the actual product...

      I've had countless talks with their support teams and sales folks who threaten to solve my issues with Invision v7 aka codename vaporware. The lack of transparency about the problems and supposed solutions with their customer base has been baffling, especially compared to unicorn companies. All in all, they basically beat all the simple screen sharing competition, and then completely stopped innovating while pivoting away from their core base to build...something else. No one really knows for sure. Maybe not even Clark.

        I moved to Figma last year and never looked back to Sketch+Invision. Live screen sharing is great for UX demos.

          Are any companies using Figma? Companies w/ more than 5 designers and/or more than one design team?

            According to Figma's last blog, Uber's whole team is using Figma.

            Our design team at Microsoft has been using it exclusively for the past two years. We also have a few thousand users across the company using it.

            Yes, Org company here. 10 designers on the paid account plus our entire engineering team, QA, PMs....all on the free account.

            Through my vetting process I talked to at least 3 other directors/vps/managers from some pretty well known names in product tool land who also plan on making the same move.

        I could have literally written this same exact post. Waiting just about a year for v7, the solutions to all of my problems...and nothing.

        So we left and chose Figma Team. Moving soon to Figma Org.

      I moved to Marvel. I have the same bad vibes about the product. :(
